If your bucket list includes seeing THE GREAT SPHINX OF GIZA and FLOATING WEIGHTLESSLY on the Dead Sea, then it’s time you zipped on over to the Middle East.

Whether you wanna leap like Aladdin through Cairo, stroll through 2,000 year old Roman ruins in Israel or fill up on Turkish kebabs and baklava in Istanbul, the Middle East has a world of exoticness (yup, that’s a word) to offer.

So jump on a Geckos Middle East tour and ride the camels in Morocco, meet dead Kings in Luxor, visit the holy sites in Israel and feel like Indiana Jones in Petra, while you let the Middle East’s world of wonders take you away. 

Why we love The Middle East

  • White Widow: Instead of wearing black for mourning, Moroccan widows wear white for 40 days after their husbands pass away.
  • Double pretty: Not only can they survive two month without water, camels have two rows of eyelashes.
  • Birthplace of civilisation: Ancient Mesopotamia covers areas of Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.
  • Float on, friends: A bowling ball floats in the Dead Sea.
  • Continuous capitals: One of the world’s oldest cities, Amman has been inhabited since 7000BC.
